To cap it off: A high-spin cyanide-bridged Ni9W6 cluster (S = 12) shows ferromagnetic coupling between NiII (green) and WV (purple) ions within the molecule. The surface was modified by substituting the solvent molecules on the surface of the cluster with 2,2′-bipyridine to afford an air-stable Ni9W6 cluster with single-molecule magnetism. (Figure Presented).
